    He is 240mm tall and the poster says his joints are almost tight. but another poster says it's better to glue outer armor parts, because some of them are tend to fall off when playing around.

    Wonder if that means the pieces are designed to be removable?

    I've been curious because I'll definitely be painting BB at some point. If the pieces come back off I'll probably put him together and get to that later. It'll be much easier to paint him with everything apart, so if they don't come back off I'll need to paint him first.

    I want to paint Prime. But much like every movie Prime toy, I'm stumped on how to apply a good glossy red coat of paint without wrecking his flames I'm pretty sure I can't recreate them as nicely as I'd want them to be.

    So far these are by far the most exciting DOTM toys I've seen. I can't wait!

    I don't have any movie Primes at all, though I do love the aesthetic and transformation engineering of Buster Prime.

    Definitely picking this bad boy up when I fly to Japan next month! It'll be a fun couple activity to put him together with the fiancee/wife too. XD

    This is just awesome! I emailed BBTS for the approximate arrival date and they said "I apologize but we are not given any specific arrival dates -only the estimated month which is subject to change." That and I think if I'm not mistaken, all overseas retailers also say preorder. So are we looking at a July release? Oh and bring on more accessories for this guy! Jetfire armor, DOTM jetpack and guns please!

    oh man, im so glad i ordered this!!! it can't get here fast enough!!!!! that skeleton is going to get a nice undercoat and dry brush.

    we we we so excited!!!




    1. price runs about $110 to $120 + shipping. i got mine from Captured Prey for $110 and with shipping it ran $117, but i live down the road from their online store so my shipping my be a little cheaper. BBTS had them for $120 + shipping. at CP you have to pay in full, BBTS they hold your money until it's in stock. it was worth it to me to just pay and get it cheaper! there's is another version with the swords but that was around $20 or $30 more i believe.

    2. the flames come on the pieces. no need to paint them on.

    Thanks, I'll give it some thought now that I have a dollar figure. Is BB half the price simply based on size?
